Launched in October, Custom Line Navetta 30 by the Ferretti Group, marked a new chapter in the brand’s evolution. This romantic yacht is full of charm and makes an elegant and contemporary style statement. The interiors are designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Filippo Salvetti and unite the architectural language of the maritime tradition, living materials, fine craftsmanship and the power of light.
At 28.43 m in length and with a beam of 7.3 m (24 ft), Navetta 30 is a product of collaboration between the Product Strategy Department led by Mr. Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
The Navetta 30 is the first project with exteriors designed by Filippo Salvetti and interiors by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. The influence of these top professionals can be seen in every stylistic choice, across a construction process in which the details are enhanced by being set against a clean and linear design.
An in-depth approach to the design process, referencing stylistic features in the finest tradition, has generated the many unusual elements that make Navetta 30 a new icon of the sea. They range from the choice of natural, organic materials like leather, wood and rope, to the celebration of light. References to the circle as the perfect sign, inspired a return to the rounded lines typical of boats from the past. Custom designed are the resin film wall coating consisting of quartz powder on glass fiber. The sea metaphor is also clear to see in the color ways, and particularly in the choice of blue, as well as in the care over detail and in manufacturing processes that draw on the noble art of cabinetmaking.
The constant reference to seafaring tradition can also be seen in the rounded lines and curves of the interior spaces, furniture and window frames, combined with the use of natural materials like solid wood, leather and teak, which are free to continue their natural cycle and live a new life at every stage in their story.
The return to the historical memory of “going to sea” is also emphasized by the use of the color blue for the walls and furnishings, as well as for the fabrics and coatings with their custom textures, all helping to enhance the continuity between interior and exterior at a stylistic level too, in an unfiltered experience with the sea.
The design gives an innovative twist to the brand’s heritage values of seaworthiness, comfort, safety and customization, making it instinctively recognizable while retaining a sense of formal purity. A design made to last.
During the interior design process, there was a special focus on the use of space, to optimize the yacht’s volumes and enhance the functional value of the entire surface area available. All the furniture and furnishings are custom-made using sophisticated handcrafting and cabinetmaking techniques that can clearly be seen at first glance in the stern flag mast, in the curving solid wood window frames and in the teak ceilings. The pairing with natural leather and wood creates a textured mood that is fresh and youthful.
Special care has been lavished on the lighting design, on which work began right from the outset to ensure the perfect integration of architecture and light. Ceiling units on the various decks help create a balanced lighting system in both exterior and interior areas, working in synergy with other more focused light sources to highlight design objects and works of art. The lighting of architectural features like stairways and windows becomes an integral part of the design itself, with illuminated details that establish a sense of balance and a more fluid relationship with the exteriors. Decorative wall-mounted lamps enrich the spaces with reflections and light effects, giving them personality.
Navetta 30 has three decks with every comfort and a total of over 320 square meters of space in which she can accommodate 10 guests in five cabins, with a master stateroom on the main deck and four guest cabins on the lower deck.
